Jhaveri Contemporary presents Circle, Square, Triangle, Turtle, Fish, a solo show by Amina Ahmed.
Ahmed’s practice is self-defined as ‘geometry in nature’. She is alert to the shapes that are inherent to life and structure our physical reality. ‘In my art I access the patterns, the rhythms, and the pulse of life that I believe permeates all living things’, she explains. Her educational background in Islamic arts has shaped this sensitivity to geometry and led her to find in nature her art.
Repetitive shapes of colour are ordered across her works. At meeting points, their pigments saturate each other. Blues infiltrate red. Greens overlap with oranges. Pink leaks across yellow. A pencil scaffolding, faintly apparent, holds the whole together.
